When travelling to Swansea Valley Holiday Cottages by car, please look out for the brown tourism sign in the village of Rhos and again outside the entrance to the farm drive which is market by two white pillars. It is also sometimes better to use Google Maps to navigate to our business name rather than the postcode which covers a large area as we are in a rural location. If you wish to use What3Words to navigate to the front doorstep of our cottages, here are the addresses:
